The 3rd meeting of the Glasgow City council cross party dementia working group as per my motion passed last February .I look forward to meeting all who attend ,this motion was passed on the life stories I received from families living with or caring for a loved one with dementia

You can get involved by sending your thoughts, opinions or life story to  our lives our words can help others


Council recognises the inspirational efforts of Tommy Whitelaw in raising awareness of the issues effecting the carers and families of people suffering from Dementia through his “Tommy on Tour” campaign
Council agrees to set-up a Cross Party Working Group to engage with carers and to ensure that the services provided to carers are appropriate to the needs of the carers and those suffering from Dementia and that the Working Group’s findings be presented by Council to the Scottish Government.
